5 Things that you are doing wrong for your skin


Skincare routines can be quite confusing for a gal. Often times you may read about some new way to keep your skin fresh and supple, only to find out that you are harming your skin in the long run. These common mistakes may not have such devastating effects, but occasionally, they can provide long term problems.

We all know that using collagen creams can be the secret of a youthful skin. Sometimes, using a face cream is not enough though. There are a lot of common misconceptions with regards to skincare. Let’s take a look at some of the things that you may be doing wrong for your skin.

1.       Drinking water from the bottle: Drinking a lot of water helps to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. A lot of skin care experts would tell you that one of the first things you must do with regards to skin care is to drink a lot of water. However, few people know that drinking water directly from the bottle is actually bad for you. In the long run, this simple act would create wrinkles around your lips. A lot of people never actually think of this. Just the way frowning a lot would give you wrinkles, this also has long term effects.

2.       Applying sunscreen only to your face: This is a common error made by women. Sunscreen is not meant for just your face, and most people know this but go ahead anyways. This act leads to having lighter skin on your face and darker skin throughout the rest of your body. It is essential to use sunscreen or a summer cream all over your body every single day. Even though it may be tiring, you must realize that this is for your own good.


3.       Taking very long, very hot showers: Hot showers are very refreshing, and they get even more refreshing when the weather is cold. However, when you stay in the shower for too long, you are getting rid of your skin’s natural oils. This would leave your skin dry and itchy. If you want to have healthy skin, use lukewarm water or don’t stay in the water too long.

4.       Exfoliating a little too much: Exfoliating helps to rid your skin of its dead cells and expose a fresher and much lighter skin tone. Doing this too much may have adverse effects on your skin. It can get addictive when you see the initial results gotten from exfoliating, but try not to do this too frequently.

5.       Getting too little sleep: Sleep is the body’s natural way of rectifying errors and rebuilding dead cells. If you are overworking yourself and not getting enough rest, your skin would start to age quicker, and you wouldn’t look as fresh as people that are getting enough sleep.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
